Google Gmail has received a radical redesign, making the interface intuitive as well as aesthetically pleasing. The email platform also boasts powerful spam blocking software. And another plus is the ease with which it integrates with other Google services, such as YouTube, Google Drive and Google Maps.
What is the size limit on email attachments in Gmail?
Gmail users can attach files up to 25MB and upload multiple files at once.
